suns will win likely by double fiqures

bet Amare goes off. They have no one who can guard him inside.

Nash vs williams should be interesting though

Actually, Memphis potentially have a player who has both the size, quickness and athleticism to bother Amare.

I'm not saying he will, but he could.

You don't bother Amare with quickness or size. You bother him by getting physical just like you bother Rasheed, Duncan, Garnett, etc. by getting physical. In fact the only player in the league that really isn't bothered by physical defense is Shaq when you think about it.

That is not the only way. Amare likes to bang. There isn't a lot of players out there able to bang with the big boys harder than him, after all he has been doing it against bigger players all year.

You bother him by not letting him get easy plays, which he gets due to his athleticism, quickness, length and Steve Nash. Memphis has a player who could really be effective against Amare. Of course, Denver has a player that could be really effective against Tim, doesn't mean its going to happen though.

All the suns ever talk about is their offense -- don't know how they think they are a good defensive team when it is never on the mind.

they only let teams shoot 44%..their D is not that bad and you can afford to not play as much D when you score 110 points per game

I don't think Memphis has much of a shot, but I'd like them to steal a game or two.

MI21, you're talking about Stromile Swift, right?

Personally, I think Memphis can take this to six tough games. They've played Phoenix about as well as anybody except the Spurs.

The only thing that can keep me level tonight is Suns losing after the Spurs lost.... doesn't look like it's going to happen :
